Saturday night, Naomi was fatally shot while riding in the back of a car. It happened in the city’s Back of the Yards neighborhood.


It does not appear she was the intended target.

“I think too often in Chicago, with everything that’s going on we say, ‘Oh this happens because she was at the wrong place at the wrong time,’” said school principal Allison Tingwall, “But when it’s a kid who’s doing everything right, there shouldn’t be a wrong place at the wrong time.”

Zuber’s family says the teen loved volleyball and watching scary movies. She recently got a job a U.S. Cellular Field.

Naomi’s family is thanking everyone for the support. There is a $3,000 reward in this case.

Police are still investigating.
